Old Fashioned TX BBQ

This place is great if you are looking for old fashioned BBQ. The atmosphere is great. Select multiple BBQ meats and veggies. Pay for the meal by the pound. Everything is fresh and enjoyable. It is NOT fancy--you eat at picnic tables and off trays. However it is definitely an experience and... read more

Just outside of old downtown coppell and the best bbq in the area. Always packed at lunch and dinner times but the line is quick. Pick your meat at the coffins, make sure you get that pork chop dipped before heading inside fir decent sides but no one came for potato salad. Prices are good and in line with other... More

I have never had such great tasting BBQ before. Everything we had was delicious. We had ordered the briquet, turkey, sausages, and steak. If I were to do it again, I would load up on the sausages, steak, and try the BBQ chicken. I can't wait to go back!

I love barbecue and I was like a kid in a candy store here. You walk up and they have meat EVERYWHERE cooking and you tell them what you want. MY wife took me here for my birthday and it was well worth it. The sides were very good and the place has an open atmosphere. If you want to... More

Tried the brisket, ribs, and a popper. Brisket was very good. Ribs were good. This place does a great job considering the insane volume of bbq they make every day.

From the first time we've been there we totally love it. The food is great. The best are brisket, corn and ribs. If you are not Americans like us and you're in TX, this is a must. Best BBQ for us.

When we moved to Texas two and half years ago, we knew nothing about real BBQ. I'm talking cooked over an open-pit, mouth-watering BBQ. Enter Hard Eight BBQ... We've been to both Coppell and Roanoke locations a handful of times, but this past Saturday I had an exceptional experience that I just have to share! On my way home from... More

It is a great place to bring out of town guests. They will eat up (pun intended) the experience of the huge grills, tons of meat, and smoke. The long lines and the wait add to the excitement factor. For locals though and those who have been to another branch, I think it is not worth the ridiculously long line... More

We all know saying "Everything's big in Texas" with the emphasis on everything. Well, that's exactly what we got when we chowed down at Hard Eight BBQ. The building itself was huge, as were the portions, the service while ordering and checking out and most importantly the smell of BBQ and the flavor!! I'm from California where our BBQ sauce...

After our connecting flight got cancelled, our shuttle driver recommended this place. Best BBQ we've had and quite an experience! Hope to get stuck in Dallas again sometime!
